Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder (or garlic flakes)
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika (See Note 1)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Instructions

  • Mix together in a small bowl and keep in an airtight container.
  • This is my go to for a dry rub on pork chops. It's balanced with sweet and spicy and doesn't over power the meat. Perfect to use on pork chops, tenderloin, cutlets or if smoking and grilling pork shoulder.
  • For ribs, which are a different cut of pork, I have several other dry rubs.

Notes

  1. Substitute with Smoked Paprika for a more smokey flavor.
